Edgewood Estates Chardonnay (2002) is a personal fav of ours, but to be honest, I'd rather have a frozen margarita (no salt, please)...

Oh the conveniences of wine in a box...no cork...thus no cork screw needed.

Just open up the tap and let it flow!

I prefer Vlakenberg Riesling. Their Gewürztraminer is good, too. I also like an American Pino Noir for a red if it's aged enough to not be too tanic. I prefer whites though. Rose'z are OK. I don't care too much for the Sparking wines because I don't like the dry wines.

Also, when the wine is gone, you can remove the bag from inside the box, blow it up and use it for a pillow. How's that for versatility?

No one mentioned 3 buck Chuck from Sam's Club.
In STL, one local liquor chain advertises "30 dime wine...the more she drinks, the better you look!" I've never tried it, haven't had to!)

I like the screw caps found on the little bottles in 4 packs. I use them for cooking and what ever is left is easy to open and no extra cork.

Don't associate screw on caps with cheap wines. Some of the better imported wines (New Zealand wines for example routinely have screw on caps but are among the some of the best in the world), and some of the more expensive wines, have gone to screw on caps and synthetic corks because of an increase in cork failure and an increase in cork mold. Both of which can ruin a bottle of wine and neither of which can usually be detected without tasting the wine on a bottle by bottle basis, i.e. after the consumer purchases it.

I had heard something about that over the past few months. Besides if you dont have the skilled hand to properly open a bottle of wine you end up with cork floating in your glass. I have been given a glass like that before...no thankyou.

How very true!! There are even some good wines in cardboard. ( I hate to say that)
The vintners are producing lots of wines that do not need to be layed down. These are meant to be consumed "now". That from a few local yokuls.
New Zealanders are producing some very tasty blends. be adventerous. try some.

I noticed in the poll that zinfandel is in italics- humm

I enjoy the Brut champagne's too!

Wait a minute...if I remember correctly, didn't you just get married this year in Daytona, FL during bike week? I thought I saw a thread on that topic with photos of you and your lovely bride on a Harley Davidson?

So, what are you celebrating? Is it 31 weeks of marriage?

I prefer Greek wines. Kouros and Santorini Reds are my favs.

Wish we still had some in our cellar to drink with a good, thick, well marinated, well aged ribeye.

A nice Pinot with wild salmon is wonderful!

A rich Merlot is wonderful with anything!

Oh, what the heck, just open a bottle. We'll end up happy.
